Uruguay 1973
Pan-American Federation of blood donation

Another example for encouraging blood donation – this time, a hand is used as symbol to give a gift, which is the heart as extended life, and the arm shows the position for blood donation.  It has strong composition and looks good, despite using only two colours.

この一枚はウルグアイから、献血を呼びかける切手です。ハートは贈り物となる生命を象徴し、手はをれを必要な人に渡す意思、腕と血管で輸血をする様子をそれぞれ描いているわけですが、2色しか使っていないのにクールな構成です。
